There's no need to complicate the question of what is '.22'. It is .22 LR or .22 Short. Even .22 Magnum is never called just .22 and no centerfire rifle cartridge is ever called just .22.

Living off the land, you would want a .22 for taking small game and making less noise. It would be great to have a centerfire carbine for the two-legged varmints, but depending on how good you are, a .22 in the eye at 25 yds will stop the fight as well as any other rifle.
